Are you ready to break in to Amsterdam’s most beautiful and highly secured vault complex?

For this unique experience, you will form a team of highly skilled thieves, challenged to steal a mysterious object from deep inside Amsterdam’s most secure safe.

Yes, it’s a 90 year old safe-complex with original antique vaults, but don’t be fooled: the security system is state of the art.

You will infiltrate the safe complex, disable its security, steal the object, and get out. We will have a set of specialised tools, and our finest henchman at your service.

Beware: should you get caught, we will deny any knowledge of this operation.

*Please note that the level of English required for this mission is advanced.

We have recently discovered a mysterious room, hidden in the very heart of Amsterdam, inside the catacombs of the old Beurs van Berlage.

This room has not been used or altered since 1934 and it appears to have been the old office of the architect himself, HP. Berlage.

It has long been rumoured that mr. Berlage was a high-ranking member of the most secretive Society of the Crossed Keys, a group of luminaries that has guarded the world’s most powerful secrets, until the year Berlage died in 1934.

No one has seen or heard of the Society or their secrets ever since.

We now suspect that the last remaining trace of the Society may be hidden inside this newly discovered room, and this is where we call upon your most immediate help.

We have recently discovered a mysterious room hidden in the catacombs of the Arminius church in Rotterdam.

This room has not been used or altered for decades, and it appears to have been the old office of the architect Henri Evers.

We now suspect that one the last remaining traces of the Society may be hidden inside this newly discovered room, and this is where we call upon your most immediate help.

  • What’s the difference between the experiences?

    The Architect is an escape room based experience with a playing time of 60 minutes. The Vault is a ‘break-in’ experience with a playing time of 90 minutes. Due to its unique concept, The Vault is experienced to be slightly more challenging than The Architect. Both experiences are unique and lots of fun.

  • Can we play both experiences at the same time?

    Yes! Both experiences run on the same time schedule (every two hours). Please note that they have different timelimits (The Architect 60 min., The Vault 90 min.) so chances are the two groups won’t end at the same time.

  • Can we do the experience with more than 6 at the same time?

    6 players is our maximum. With more players, the group dynamic changes and the experience isn’t as much fun.

  • Is the location wheelchair accessible?

    Unfortunately our location is not wheelchair accessible. Both experiences are located in the catacombs of the Beurs van Berlage, only to be entered by stairs.

  • Do you take unpaid reservations?

    No, we only take paid bookings. This makes our system faster and more transparent!

  • Cancellation policy - 72 hours

    You can cancel (or change) your experience date up to 3 days before the game is scheduled, without extra costs being incurred. Within 72 hours, your full game will be charged.

  • Are the rooms scary?

    No. The experiences are mysterious, challenging and exciting, but not scary in any way.

    It’s also fine if you’re claustrophobic. The rooms are quite spacious, nobody is forced to do anything they don’t want to, and you can always ask to leave the room if you feel uncomfortable. This has never happened with us, but we’re always ready for it.

  • Can my 12 year old son/daughter join my team?

    Absolutely. Perhaps (s)he’ll be the smartest player on your team..

  • Can our 12 year old triplets play without adult supervision?

    Probably not. Most puzzles are age-independent, but some would be tricky without some adult insight. We’ve had groups of 14 year olds and they managed well, so we set the minimum age requirement at 14+ for groups without adults. A chaperone of 16 years or older is required for younger participants.

  • Can we be a little tipsy when participate in the experiences?

    Not even a little. We need you at your sharpest, and also, the rooms are over 100 years old and not tipsy-proof. We’re pretty stern about this actually and our hosts will remove a player from the game if they feel they’re intoxicated or disrupting the game flow.

We are building a worldwide top quality mystery experience brand. This means we treat requests to collaborate or franchise somewhat differently from most other franchises. We believe in extreme levels of detail and creativity and we spend a lot of time finding the perfect location. We believe that if you create an extraordinary, pinnacle experience, not only will your business flourish, but also, the opportunities that come your way will be the most worthwhile. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a quickly deployable, less demanding experience, we advise you to look further.

If you’re interested in joining forces with our particular brand of mystery makers, and our team of behavioral designers, architects, writers and visual artists, we’d be delighted to hear from you. Please email our core team at

Escape games are exceptional in putting teams to the test. Collaboration, communication and creativity are crucial in finding your way and the time element adds both pressure and joy to the experience. Just a fragment of the companies whose teams we’ve hosted:

We’ve also used the game as a recruitment tool; allowing company recruiters to evaluate candidates’ performance within a team and under pressure.
